Jordon Cooke stopped all 32 shots he faced as the Kelowna Rockets shutout the Prince George Cougars 3-0 at Prospera Place in Kelowna on Thursday night.

Cooke was excellent in the first period when the Cougars outshot Kelowna 14-7 while Colton Sissons penalty shot goal turned the tide in the Rockets direction.

“I thought Jordon was excellent in the first period and allowed us to get going,” said Rockets’ coach Ryan Huska on the AM 1150 post game show. “I thought we got going a little better the rest of the game but Jordon was our best player.”

Sissons marker came short-handed and gave Kelowna a 1-0 lead after the first period.

Myles Bell added his seventh and eighth goals of the season to give Kelowna the win, in front of 4,781 fans at Prospera Place.
